The neighborhood of Ridgewood would not instantly strike anyone as being a particularly obvious location for a destination streetwear store. On the border of Brooklyn and Queens, it's a pretty leafy suburb, with a mixture of long time Hispanic residents and the infiltration of the odd hipster here and there.
However, 5 minutes walk from the local subway station, off the beaten track lies Madison. A Brooklyn streetwear bastion.
Madison works because of its location. There is literally nothing like it in the surrounding area and it has a fervent customer base looking for all the latest international brands as well as some quality home brand Madison items such as snapbacks and tees.
The store has had a recent refurb and re-brand and they have done a great job. A luxurious wooden exterior and the environment is light and airy, fitted out in a clean style and carries a great mixture of lines as well as all the latest pieces from KING.
One of the best hidden gems on the NY streetwear map, you should definitely check these guys out if you’re in the neighborhood as you might just find something that no one else has.
